Bliss joined the University of Birmingham as the Research Associate for PARTNERS2 in March 2017. PARTNERS2 aims to formulate and evaluate a new model of care for patients diagnosed with severe mental illness. This intervention will allow primary care and specialist mental health workers to collaborate in the provision of care for people with a diagnosis of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, with the intention of improving patient outcomes.


  • MSc in Medical Anthropology, Durham University, 2016
  • BA Joint Honours in Anthropology and Archaeology, Durham University, 2015


Bliss graduated from Durham University after four years in January 2017, having focused her studies in Medical Anthropology. She was particularly drawn to Applied Anthropology, in which anthropological methodology and theories are utilised in order to solve real-world problems.

Bliss took an interest in Psychiatric Anthropology, and focussed her independent research in this field. For her BA dissertation, Bliss researched the consequences of the biomedicalisation of Psychiatry, and for her MSc, the gender divide within mental health.

She is keen to continue building a career within mental health, and aspires to complete a PhD in the future.
